Are these any good? Torque seems quite low at 17nm?
I have the 650, brother has 500 or 550 or something and we could notice the difference easily. This 700 is likely even better than the 650. I bought my one 4 or 5 years ago for about £60 and it's been an excellent DIY drill when you need more power than a combi cordless like the Boach PSB.

I love it. This is an excellent deal for a great drill that will give years of service. Heat.
How do drills like this compare to SDS drills for masonry drilling?

I've been looking at something a bit meatier than my combi drill. I guess this might be a good budget option ?

Nowhere near as good, a half decent cordless combi drill is as good as this for not much more money, which would also do as a screwdriver. I can't believe they still sell these, they belong back in 1980.

So what would you recommend to beat the current combi drills hands down - without breaking the bank ?
For brick and concrete an SDS drill, which you need SDS drill bits for. If you wanted to used it for wood and metal, you will need to buy a SDS chuck if it doesn't come with one to enable to use normal drill bits, or use a combi drill.

This is better than most combi cordless drills by far. Way more power for tougher jobs. I would say for a DIYer, having a combi, impact, and wired drill like this is a good trio. If you want to go a step further, get an SDS drill too for really tough work like chiseling tiles off and boring holes through walls etc.

If I could have one all rounder I'd go for something like this. Can screw and drill with hammer action.

Sort of. Hammer action can be found on many types of drills - it moves the drill bit in and out to make holes in tougher material like masonry. SDS does the same thing but uses a different mechanism and there is lots more power behind it for doing bigger tougher jobs much faster. They usually come with a chiseling feature too that you wouldn't usually get with a standard hammer drill.
Ah ok cheers
